Plenary on Revisiting Putting Africa First: the Making African Innovation Systems

"We have shifted from science to research. Science is certainity; Research is uncertainity. Science  is supposed to be cold, straight and detached; research is warm, involving and risky. Science puts an end to the vagaries of human disputes; Research fuels controversies by more controversies." …Bruno Latour. We need to build research capacity systematically in Africa.. Africa actually fits well with Bruno Latour’s idea of research-warm, involving and risky!

    It's a shame you don't have a donate button! I'd certainly
    donate to this brilliant blog! I guess for now i'll settle for bookmarking and
    adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will
    talk about this site with my Facebook group.
    Chat soon!


    wonderful issues altogether, you simply received a brand new
    reader. What may you suggest in regards to your
    post that you just made a few days in the past?

    Any certain?


    This design is incredible! You obviously know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!


    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on auto insurance quotes.

    Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring
    on other sites? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you
    discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I
    know my audience would value your work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.


    Thank you for any other wonderful post. The place else could anybody get that type of info in such an ideal means
    of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I'm on the search
    for such info.
